The endless darkness and the somber, long passages of a military complex have become the abode of evil, as thousands of blood-thirsty creatures fill its offices, storehouses and mysterious laboratories. Your mission is simple: clear the base at all costs. You will be provided with explosives to help you gain access to the teleports from where thousands of pitiless creatures pour. A stationary gun will aid in the defense of the area. You have been granted access to the most advanced weapons technology money can buy. As you earn your pay, you can equip yourself with additional weapons in the arming area and biomechanical implants that will make your fighting abilities super human. The alien invasion has begun, we have one chance, and that is to stop them cold in their staging area. Do not allow them escape this facility, you are our last hope. The fate of humanity now depends on you!
I have this game on Steam and GoG.com, and I have loved every second of it. This is one of the best isometric action Run&Gun shooters there is. It has just the right balance of action and level of challenge.
Alien Shooter has some light RPG elements and many upgradeable weapons. Don't worry, there is no reloading in this game, so just fire away to your hearts content. there is plenty of time to reload after the mission...
If you run out of ammunition, you will always have your old, trusty dual pistols with magical unlimited ammunition.
You can find money and weapons on the levels as you progress and there are many secrets along the way, hiding some money, health, weapons and implants for you to grab. Sometimes finding them requires some simple puzzle solving, but nothing flipping a switch somewhere later in the level or blowing up a gas canister won't fix. You also gain mission completion bonuses which you spend on improving your stats, buying and upgrading your weapons and on ammunition and other tools such as suits of armour and medikits. All a mercenary like you needs to complete the task, really.
The controls are fast and responsive and it is easy to pick up and the graphics of this game are clean and sharp. You can easily see what is going on, even when there is a lot of action on the screen. And that is VERY often. (Alien) blood splatters all over the place, gibs bounce around and hordes of aliens keep coming at you. Keep shooting soldier, as long as you can keep the bullets raining down the hall whey can't get to you. Let's hope you packed enough with you.
You need to be quick on your feet and accurate with your aim or you'll be just a small morsel for them after they have devoured the employees and guards of the research facility.
If you are a fan of shooting games with emphasis on the action, grab it right away.
You will be in for a hell of a ride.
